Rep. Barney of Highgate explained his vote as follows:

"Mr. Speaker:

I voted yes to make this motion debatable because the abortion issue, although we may not wait to discuss it as time has become lost in the process. This issue, like any other issue, deserves the attention of our government."

Rep. Hyde of Fayston explained his vote as follows:

"Mr. Speaker:

It is a sad day when members of this body do not allow the expression of free speech regardless of the issue."

Rep. Valsangiacomo of Barre City explained his vote as follows:

"Mr. Speaker:

Debate is encouraged by our Constitution. I always vote for debate even if I oppose the question."

"Mr. Speaker:

Voting no was not enough, Mr. Speaker. Serious charges have been levied here in a very public forum.

I would like to apologize to the many Vermonters who have brought their creative and professional energies to the Sustainable Jobs Fund to bring it through its infancy. And I look forward to a more constructive forum where we can all be part of its promising future."

Rep. Hoag of Woodford explained his vote as follows:

"Mr. Speaker:

We are voting on a funding issue. I don't think that government has a place in the decision-making process of an abortion issue."

Rep. Koch of Barre Town explained his vote as follows:

"Mr. Speaker"

Last year I voted "No" on a similar question. I have become persuaded since then that this particular procedure is wrong and should not be supported with public funds. My vote today, however, does not signal any weakening of my otherwise pro-choice views."

Rep. Houston of Ferrisburgh explained her vote as follows:

"Mr. Speaker:

I do respect the good efforts of the Appropriations committee. I strongly support increasing funds to higher education and reducing our high debt burden. In reality this budget is not a 3.5% increase as it does not recognize the 8.3 million appropriated in the budget adjustment act and the 40 million of taxpayers "surplus money" to backfill the Act 60 shortfall."
